IPOB activists in Enugu carried out a severance ceremony to “disconnect the connection between Biafra and Nigeria”.
The ceremony saw Biafra activists write down prayer points on papers with the four market days observed in Igbo land as the focus of the prayer.
They called on their “ancestors” to fight for Biafra and grant them autonomy from Nigeria.
During the ceremony, the Biafran activists put an image in a casket, using a green and white colored cloth – the color of the Nigerian flag – to signify Nigeria. They ended up burning the casket as a sign of their disconnection from Nigeria.
Sharing photos from the event on its official Facebook account, the Biafra activists wrote:
